The beautiful shot from the left foot of Giroud (69th) will not have been enough. AC Milan stumbles in the shock at the top against Naples, after the penalty converted by Politano (55th) and the beautiful header from Simeone (78th).
What inevitably make euphoric the Azzuri who seize the head of the classification and who still have not lost a single match this season, both in the league (5 wins, 2 shares) and in the Champions League (2 wins) .
Inter beaten, Juve plunges into crisis
What makes Neapolitan fans even more jubilant is that their other historical rivals had a very bad weekend. Starting with Inter Milan, still deprived of Romelu Lukaku who should return after the international break, who was surprised by the beautiful collective of Udinese on Sunday noon (3-1).
Seventh with 12 units, the Nerazzurri are already seeing the first places move away. Just like Juventus (10 pts), beaten by the promoted Monza who had not yet won a single match in Serie A before this Sunday. The Bianconeri remain for their five consecutive games without success.
Already in a complicated situation in the Champions League after its two inaugural defeats, the Old Lady finds herself on the verge of crisis. “It’s a difficult moment. The fans aren’t happy, but neither are we… But there’s only hard work to get out of this situation”reacted Marco Landucci, the assistant of Massimiliano Allegri, who did not appear in front of the microphones because of his suspension, but who sees his position more and more weakened.
Atalanta win in Rome
Thanks to this big success at San Siro, the Neapolitans are therefore three steps ahead of AC Milan, five over Inter and seven over Juventus. Only Atalanta is keeping the same rhythm as them for the moment.
Gian Piero Gasperini’s proteges went to surprise José Mourinho’s Roma on his lawn. Enough to allow them to share first place in Serie A with Naples.
